Well, I just stayed at the GH Kauai recently for my honeymoon, figured I should start the review thread on MilePoint for it. I'm a Diamond member, and used a Suite Upgrade Cert. Was given a fantastic Ocean Suite (roughly 1,300sf). From other threads around, the Suites at the GH Kauai have not yet been renovated, but may be in the near future. Most of the other rooms are already completed. The room was 1bed/1bath, with a nice sitting area & dining table. Large lanai with a great ocean view. Because the suites are not yet updated, the furniture was a bit dated, but still in fantastic and clean condition. I'd rate the room 10/10. IMO, the service was simply above and beyond. I've truly never experienced service on a level like this before at any hotel I've ever been to. Staff was always friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Although all of our requests (like extra water bottles, changing towels daily) were relatively minor, staff did their best to exceed all requests and make certain we were happy. Concierge was exceptional with their suggestions and follow-up. Staff/service rating: 10/10 The Grand Club Room was fantastic. I know some people have said that it can get busy at times, but every breakfast we had was great. It was quiet, mostly empty (we ate early, probably before people with kids came in). We also visited for the afternoon snacks (the brownies and cookies were awesome). More tables would have been nice, but the overall layout and offerings are above average, IMO. Grand club rating: 9/10 (just cause of the fruit flies which were a minor annoyance, but I think the whole island is infested) The Annara Spa was wonderful, albeit expensive. We had booked their top line couples package (almost $1,200) but let me just say it was well worth it. 6 hours of total bliss. The 15% off coupon that was left in our room since we were on our honeymoon was a nice touch by the hotel, and much appreciated. I visited the spa almost daily, and the wife made full use of the gym facilities and various classes they offered. Spa rating: 10/10. I saw/heard absolutely no construction work. I know some stuff is going on with the room renovations, but the hotel has done a fantastic job to keep it totally out of view. The overall hotel condition looks very good. Of course the landscaping is incredible, but even just generally speaking, it shows what a great maintenance job they do. Overall hotel condition: 9/10 Stevenson Library was fun, food at Tidepools and the Ilimai Terrace were very good. Ordered room service once, and the grilled cheese was damn good lol. Did not check out the other dining options as we wanted to spend time out of the hotel as well. Dining rating: 9/10 ($35 for 18-Y/O Macallan? Wow thats pricey!) We did all sorts of activities... the spa, ATV ride, Napali boat tour, chilling in cabana’s by the pool, great dinners. Did not bother going to Princeville at all. One thing we missed doing was Waimea canyon, but that will be for another visit. My overall rating of the hotel is 10/10. There really is not much more they could have done to improve our stay. Again, I want to mention the amazing service we received from all staff. I had stayed at the GH Kauai back in 1991, not long after it had first opened, as a 10 year old kid with my family. I can’t believe it took me song long to come back, but both my wife and I agree our next visit to Kauai will not be so far apart. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone, especially for a Suite upgrade.
